    OUT OF THE BLUE AND INTO YOUR PROJECT

    Thanks for taking this journey with us.
    Now let us help support your dreams and vision! 


    Two Skype or phone sessions (60 minutes) with John Alan Simon or Elizabeth Karr on production or distribution topics of your choice.

    In exchange for your generous support to save and preserve "Out of the Blue", ask us about ways to best move your own film project(s) forward. John is an experienced producer at the studio and indie level with expertise as both distributor and producer’s rep, WGA writer, director, former film critic and sought after consultant on both the creative and business side. If you’re more into crowdfunding, documentaries, social media & marketing, then let Elizabeth help you strategize a realistic game plan. And if you happen to have a film that you’re considering restoring, this is a perfect opportunity to benefit from our own recent (steep) learning curve.
